Hull Cartridge Company has in its line-up Superfast Pigeon, a 23⁄4in (70mm) cartridge with a choice of fibre or plastic wad, 29g of No. 6 shot and a higher velocity than its now-familiar Special Pigeon. However, the Special Pigeon has 32g of No.6 shot and a fibrewad and is another recommended as being particularly reliable for semi-auto use.
